Statement from Jets Confidential

In Sunday's New York Daily News, guard Pete Kendall accused the Jets of leaking negative information about him to the press during his contract dispute.

One example cited was a Jets Confidential story claiming that the team's brass believes Kendall is a "clubhouse lawyer."

"Nobody from the New York Jets organization leaked disparaging comments about Pete Kendall to Jets Confidential during his contract dispute," said Jets Confidential publisher Dan Leberfeld. "We want to make it clear, the Jets didn't engage in a "smear" campaign against Kendall in our publication at any time."
